Projecting Future Scenarios for Fidalgo Bay (All day)

Projecting Future Scenarios for Fidalgo Bay - Modeling Water Circulation and Coastal Changes

Dr. Eric Grossman, Research Geologist, U.S. Geological Survey

“Dr. Grossman will discuss how the US Geological Survey is using powerful 3D computer modeling to examine coastal processes and inform ecosystem restoration and hazard mitigation in the Salish Sea.  How might climate change, sea level rise and land use influence coastal communities, ecosystem restoration outcomes, and Fidalgo Bay? Learn how USGS is constructing a 3D hydrodynamic model of Fidalgo Bay as part of a larger Salish Sea model to study these questions. Citizen science can help USGS and its partners improve these models through research and monitoring – find out how you can get involved as a volunteer!”




Waterfront Festival (All day)

Look for FOSB and our partners at Waterfront Festival.  We'll be in the "Discovery Channel".

“Exploring the Salish Sea Floor”
Dr. H. Gary Greene, director, SeaDoc Society/Moss Landing Marine Labs’ Tombolo Mapping Lab, Orcas Island, professor emeritus, Moss Landing Marine Labs research faculty scientist, Friday Harbor Labs,  University of Washington

Why do marine birds, fish, and mammals feed where they do? How do tsunamis and earthquakes impact marine habitats? Will understanding the geology, substrate, and topography of the Salish Sea floor provide answers to these questions? Come find out.
